“Disappointed. Tacos tasted more like...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010

Disappointed. Tacos tasted more like cilantro wraps than tacos. They were very busy and it took forever to get refills etc. Nachos were bare. Not impressed.

“Good food, Fantastic margaritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

The food was good. We had fajitas and chimichangas. Service was very attentive. The owners took the time to speak with everyone. The margaritas were what made this a good deal. No skimping on the alcohol and great flavor. A bit pricey but well worth it. We would definitely go back.

“Food is worth going...not so much for the service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

We went to Pablo's on our first night into town. The salsa and food was very good however the service was lacking. The owner came over once and was very friendly but by that time we had our issues already resolved (they didnt make a dish right for one of us who is a vegetarian and when we asked them about it they acted like it was our fault). I dont think our server spoke more than 10 words to us. Having said that I would still go back if we went back to Amelia Island because the food was very good! I would still recommend going to Pablo's but don't go in hoping for 5 star service.

“awesome outside atmosphere;great servive; & great food/drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

went there on an evening out w/ my fiance.inside was packed on a saturday night, so we chose to eat outside on their back patio/garden area..good choice..we were the only ones out there, which made it feel very intimate & special. our server was very friendly & knew what he was talking about. i had the fish tacos & a mojito!! both were fantastic!! a little pricy but well worth it for a great mexican date night!
